How can I apply for healthcare allowance?
There is a couple of ways you through which you may apply for the healthcare allowance. You can easily calculate & apply for this contribution through our official tax partner - Blue Umbrella. By doing so, you ensure that your application will be filled out correctly, and the amount you have applied for is the real amount you are eligible for.
You may also apply directly through the Tax Office. The application process is in Dutch and can be tricky at times, given the specificity of the questions. Although you may have the contribution confirmed by the Dutch tax authorities, it may be revoked at any time if during a regular checkup the authorities discover that you have incorrectly filled out the application. It is likely that the tax authorities will require you to pay a part of the amount back.
